Gorge Road upgrade on track

UPGRADES to Gorge Road are due to start as part of the Gorge Road Rehabilitation project.

After consultation with local residents, two sections have been identified as priorities to be upgraded.

Both sections will be surfaced with concrete.

The works will improve protection during inundation events, increase flood immunity and reduce maintenance on the popular Finch Hatton road.
